Stuck in our own heads

img_8703

Often in life without realising it we get stuck inside our own heads.

We get caught in a web of over-thinking.

We analyse everything and we allow our ‘chimp’ limbic brain to run riot and build a wall of excuses to hide behind.

We spend more energy on convincing ourselves not to do something than doing anything, it then becomes a habit.

Step away from it all, stop thinking, stop trying to make big decisions. Life is a series of regular small steps done as best we can.

Relax and let our life out of our heads into the world and see where it takes us.

Thinking is useful, over-thinking isn’t and letting life be is often the answer to getting unstuck.

Make it worthwhile

We can always do it cheaper, easier, make it average and sell it big to the masses.

There is no art in that, no craft, no aspiration to do better. It is a job instead of creating.

Alternatively, we can do something that matters to us, something that is meaningful and worthwhile. Something that makes a difference somewhere to you and the world.

It requires patience and a belief in your cause. A willingness to not settle for ‘good enough’.

However, the wait is worthwhile.
